ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System – Awareness Training
ISO 22301 Awareness Training has been designed to help you keep business activities moving forwards in the event of any disruption. A Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) shows you how to manage training activities, exercises and reviews so that key business processes are defined and protected against threat in the case of serious incident.
Establishing an effective and comprehensive BCSM, based on the principles of ISO 22301, is essential for producing a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) that aids identification of critical activities, co-dependence areas and resources needed to support key products and services. The BCMS offers you insight into the impact of failure in any of these areas and allows you to plan strategic and tactical steps to prepare for the worst-case scenario.
By the end of this training participants will be able to:
- Explain the purpose of a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS)
- Understand the processes involved in establishing, implementing, operating and monitoring, reviewing and improving an Business Continuity Management System as defined in ISO 22301
- Describe the purpose, content and interrelationship of ISO 22301
- Understand the purpose and requirements of ISO 22301 as a tool for the continual improvement of a Business Continuity Management System
The training is an introduction for anyone involved in the development, implementation and management of a BCSM based on ISO 22301. If you plan to complete other training, such as Internal Auditor and the Lead Auditor Training, you will receive during this course the knowledge and understanding of ISO 22301 upon which to build auditing skills.
ISO 22301 Awareness Training comprises lecture and workshop exercises.
Successful completion of this and the Internal BCMS Auditor Training fulfill part of the training requirements for certification as an Internal Auditor with the International Register of Certified Auditors (IRCA).
